In our lifetime, we've seen the most incredible change in how we connect and communicate.
We're entering the age of the "Internet of Everything," where we're going to connect the unconnected—including people, process, data, and things.
And it's in this new world where we'll talk to each other in entirely new ways. As a result, networked connections will become more relevant and more valuable than ever before. As we connect the previously unconnected, amazing things will happen and amazing experiences will be created. We'll also see unprecedented opportunities for countries, businesses, and individuals.
And it's these new connections that will unlock vast human potential.
The possibilities are endless and it's happening all around us.
